From The Archive June 20, 2021 – Sweet Angel – “I’d Rather Be Myself”

Thanks Marty. This week on From the Archives of Something Blue we’re hearing contemporary blues recorded at the Arkansas Roots Festival.

Sweet Angel is from Memphis and I had been playing her songs on Something Blue and promoting her act on Delta Boogie for years so when I saw she was booked for the Arkansas Roots Festival I was excited that I would get to hear her sing.

She did not disappoint. There’s no music like live music and yes, experiencing Sweet Angel live is an entirely different experience from listening to her recordings. She’s a fantastic vocalist and songwriter and she also plays a mean saxophone.

Here she is now, Sweet Angel, singing a song she wrote called “I’d Rather Be Myself”.
